Yellow Archangels


After the rain
The air hangs
Fresh and cool,
As by a stream.
While on the pale
Crumbling wall
Ivy gleams
With a strangely
Captivating light.

And yet it is only
Half as bright
As new-leaved limes
In this urban glade,
Where wrens trill
And yellow archangels
Flower in the shade.

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
